DUMONT, N.J. — Funds are being collected for a Dumont family displaced by a fire last week.

Sean O'Callaghan has set up a GoFundMe page for donations to help her family get back on its feet.

“They are a hard working and loving family who have hit hard times," she said, "but they only say God dishes out only what you can handle.”

The family — Danielle O’Callaghan, her boyfriend Josh, two daughters, 10-year-old Sarah and 9-month-old Elli, along with their dog Jax -- were routed after fire broke out in a dry cleaners below their apartment.

Jax, who was the only one home, was rescued.

Smoke damage forced the O'Callaghans to toss their belongings -- clothes, baby toys, furniture and more.

“Please help them get through this and alleviate some of the damage, not just property, but financially, that they have encountered,” Sean O'Callahan wrote. “Prayers and well wishes are welcome too.”
